RE: Hard Tissue Committee
Yes, $40.00 may represent a sacrifice for some people. However, the $40.00 does more than just provide membership to NSH and its various other committees, including Hard Tissue. It provides a wealth of knowledge through the quarterly publication of the Journal of Histotechnology, a journal that is uniquely written for histotechs and keeps Histology labs abreast of the most recent innovations and technologies. I don't know if membership fees increase outside of the United States, but by going to the NSH website you could probably request that information on line.
The Hard Tissue Committee is comprised of a world-wide membership, and includes some of the most knowledgeable minds in the field of mineralized and demineralized bone. As the Editor of a quarterly publication called the Hard Times Communiqué, I have had and continue to have, the privilege of tapping into the collective knowledge and expertise of this body of "giants" , which is reflected in the "newsletter" and which is freely shared with all the membership.
So, $40.00 may seem like a lot, but it is not really when you keep in mind that you cannot put a price on knowledge. It is priceless.

lot of money for some if you take the various exchange rates into=20

Dear Sargent Bernard,
There is such a committee dedicated to hard tissue. I founded the committee
in 1989 and the committee is "dedicted to helping those around the world".
Are you a member of the National Society for Histotechnology ? If so, then
you can also become a member of the Hard Tissue Committee (HTC) which a
sub-committee of the Veterinary Industrial Research (VIR) committee. Not a
member? Then go to www.nsh.org and join. The membership dues are only
$40/year. You will receive the Journal of Histotechnology and NSH in Action
plus many other benefits. Vicky Kalscheur is the current HTC Chair. So
once you join NSH, contact Vicky and she can put you on the mailing list of
the HTC. Vicky wrote about the HTC in the last issue of NSH in Action.
So there you go...........take the ball and run with it. The wheel does not
have to be reinvented. As I mentioned to you in prior emails, there was a
plethora of papers written in the Journal of Histotechnology during the
1990's. Plenty of reading to get you easily up to speed.
